Audience Reviews for Minbo - or the Gentle Art of Japanese Extortion

Mr Itami strikes hard at the world of the yakuza and their extortions, and how japanese society prefers to ignore their problems instead of actually facing them. Very funny and clever, with a great performance by the charming Mrs Miyamoto. The film struck a nerve with real life yakuzas, who went to beat Mr Itami. The yakuzas of Minbo are not "honorable" guys, but bullies with suits and loud words that prey on the weak.
